Snow Cleanup Underway; Water Main Floods Road


Crews both public and private were out Tuesday, removing the snow that fell overnight and into the afternoon.

Water spewed from a main on Larkfield Road near Jericho Turnpike; Huntingon Highway Superintendent Andre Sorrentino was on the scene.

Huntington suspended its trash pickup Tuesday, saying that the snow had made working on some streets a safety issue.

Multiple drivers reported unsafe conditions on highways, with slick pavement and piles of snow.

Some businesses announced late openings, while multiple libraries decided Tuesday morning to close. Helping Hand Rescue Mission canceled plans to distribute food.


Snow began falling across the Huntington area overnight Monday, with heavier precipitation and gusting winds expected as the day goes on

Huntington Highway Superintendent Andre Sorrentino planned to have crews ready by 4 am  Tuesday

Classes at St. Anthony’s will be all remote Tuesday, while classes and all activities are closed Tuesday at all public schools– Half Hollow Hills, Elwood, South Huntington, Northport, Huntington, Cold Spring Harbor, Harborfields and Commack school districts. The Cold Spring Board of Education meeting scheduled for Tuesday is rescheduled to Feb. 27.

The snow could be heavy at times, the National Weather Service said. Though a high of 36 is predicted for Tuesday afternoon, wind chill values are expected to be between 20 and 25.

Gusting winds of up to 40 mph are also likely.

Driving conditions are expected to be poor Tuesday morning because of wind-driven snow.

Because temperatures are expected to remain above freezing during the typical hours of operation, the town’s warming centers will not be opened Tuesday. Any resident in need of shelter should contact the Suffolk County Department of Social Services at 631-853-8714.
